Dr. Stephen Dewey will educate participants on how alcohol and drug use affect the developing adolescent and adult brain. The presentation will cover a number of substances,  starting from the gateway drugs to more addictive drugs such as heroin.

Cutting edge research will be reviewed to support the disease model of addiction and to illustrate how drugs cause chemical and physiological changes in the brain that can make it next to impossible for addicts to stop using without help. MRI brain studies will illustrate the profound effects that drugs have on brain functioning and development.
